Speaking of sons

C.R. Ritter did not know his father. He was an orphan who was brought up in Mullers Homes, a Christian Orphanage in Bristol. He had overcome the handicap of a cleft palate, and by age of 20 was so highly regarded he had become a Sgt in the Royal Army Service Corps. Those who knew him considered him "a shining example of Christianity lived out in practice".

He was killed on active service in the Cameron Highlands, Perak, Malaya, on 2nd March 1950, aged 21.

While trying to recover a civilian vehicle that had broken down, he was ambushed by Communist terrorists.

John Wrake has just made a gift to this website in his memory.
